"outfront" tonight, war in mali. a deadly conflict between al qaeda militants and the government is getting violent. they're threatening to take control of the entire country. the militants' move prompted france to take action over the weekend. they put boots on the ground and went all in, bombing rebel training camps and other targets. so what will the united states do? a pentagon official told me this afternoon that the u.s. will participate in mali, but, and i want to make sure i put quotes around this, it's still deciding what that l
in williamsburg, virginia, and they're lacking to some interesting sources of inspiration. so, john avalon, pizza? >> pizza. so, erin, the republican party is having a come to jesus meating in virginia and they've really confronting the fact they've got a real branding problem after the last election. so they're calling in a bunch of speakers to pump them up, give them some advice, including the ceo domino's pizza, patrick doyle. the logic is that domino's went through a pretty major branding problem of its own, rand some ads, let's remind some folks what those looked like. >> there comes a time when you know you've got to make a change. >> domino's pizza crust to me is like cardboard. >> you can either use negive comments to get you down or you can use them to excite you and energize your process of making a better pizza. we did the latter. >> who are we?! >> we are pizza. >> this is what john boehner is watching? >> a sneak peek of what john boehner and eric cantor and the republicans are getting. the first step to solving a problem is admitting you have a problem. >> and it is really bad. the
spending cuts are proposing more spending. that's a separate issue. john, let me ask you about this that i referenced in texas. they are now saying there's a law being considered, a bill in texas, where if you're already allowed to carry concealed hand gun, you would now be allowed to carry that concealed hand gun on a college or university campus. is that bill going to change because of what happened today or is it just going to go full ahead? >> let's hope so. if there's some common sense and decency on the part of the legislators to respond to changing facts on the ground. look, this shooting is a case study for why more guns on college campuses are a terrible idea. i mean, it doesn't pass the common sense test. anyone who has been to college, it's hard to imagine a worst case scenario than a bunch of college students with more guns. every once in awhile this ideological driven idiocy is not driven by reality. four school shootings since newtown? at what point will we get a reality check and realize the worst thing we can do is have more guns on college campuses? today is a reality chec
. john boehner has repeatedly said so. but the president -- but the president is trying to force the appearance of a confrontation in order to magnify the political impact of a republican climb-down when it eventually happens, as it will. >> so daniel, let me ask you, ben bernanke came out today and weighed in on this whole thing in a way that might shock people because he said, you know what, to hell with the debt ceiling, although he said it in ben bernanke style. let me let him say it. >> i think it would be a good thing if we didn't have it. i don't think that's going to happen. >> so would it be better if we didn't have a debt ceiling at all? >> yeah, absolutely it would. this is a silly thing which ought to happen automatically because our debt is going to grow along with our economy from year to year. especially it's going to grow in times when we need to spend a little more to juice our economy. but you know, bernanke has very little credibility with the republican party because republican leadership last year actually sent letters to him saying stop with your quantitativ
. john avlon is here with me and i want to ask you this question. pork disgusts me and every american. someone's pork is someone else's, i don't know, best part of the animal. but the point is, why is it always in there? why can't these guys just realize americans want a clean, transparent bill, cut out the crap for lack of a better word. >> that should not be too much to ask but the problem is someone's pork is someone else's lifeline and this is disaster relief. we're 11 weeks after sandy. what has folks really furious is the hypocrisy. a lot of lawmakers from the gulf coast who begged for assistance and got it quickly after disasters devastated their region. all of a sudden they're being callous rather than doing the right thing. >> but hold on. why not then give the amtrak money that you need? why is two-thirds of it going to non-sandy related things? give them what they need. >> part of this is about narrative. remember the first sandy bill that just passed a week or so ago. 67 republicans voted against it. it was one page. there was no pork. but still, the argument 67 gave was t
here? >> it's pretty disturbing, disgusting one might say. thank you very much to tom foreman. john, i want to ask you this question, pork disgusts me and every american. one person's pork is someone else's -- i don't know, best part of the animal. the part is why is it always in there? why can't they realize that americans want a clean, transparent bill and cut out the crap for lack of a better word. >> shouldn't be too much to ask but someone else's pork is another person's lifeline. this is disaster relief 11 weeks after sandy. lawmakers begged for assistance and got it quickly after disasters devastated their region and now all of a sudden they are calloused instead of doing the right thing. >> why not then give the amtrak money you need. why two thirds going to nonsandy-related things. give them the amount they need. >> part of it is narrative. remember the first sandy bill that passed a week or so ago, 67 republicans voted against it. there was no pork. it is disgusting when democratic lawmakers lard up a bill with things unrelated people should be furious. can't we get it togeth
democrats. one happens to be the top democrat in the senate, harry reid. john avlon is looking into the majority leader's ties with the nra. the man the president would be relying upon to get something significant in terms of gun laws. he does pretty well with the nra. >> here is the deal about harry reid and guns. he opposed the assault weapons ban not once but twice in 1994 and 2004. he has a "b" rating from the nra. that's higher than ten other democrats. he has received money from the nra than any other senate member. >> a little love affair. he even appeared with wayne la pierre in 2010. but, he is a guy who says, you know, i'm gonna go with my party and go with the democratic party line. will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is not going to oppose the president. he is going to try to quarterback ter what he can. he is going to do what he can to move the ball forward. everything is on the table. here is the real deal. part of the pragmatism is a look at the election. arkansas, louisiana, month tan na, north carolina, south dakota. it will be interesting
